5596. MUSIC, Piano.—

I wrote [you] for
a Clavichord. I have since seen a Forte-piano
and am charmed with it. Send me this instrument
then instead of the Clavichord: let the
case be of fine mahogany, solid, not veneered,
the compass from Double G. to F. in alt, a
plenty of spare strings; and the workmanship
of the whole very handsome and worthy the
acceptance of a lady for whom I intend it.—
To Thomas Adams. Ford ed., i, 395.
(M. 1771)
